What Changes Have You Made Now That You Are JUDDDING?

I will start:

Now I cut my pies in 8 rather then 6!

I always buy and share only one sweet roll - DH gets the other half and has no problem with it either!

As you can tell from the above I love my sweets!

Since fall I started doing sit-ups, it was hard at first; now doing 50 each and every morning! And it does indeed show loss

I only restarted 12 days ago, so not that many - but generally, I'm more mindful about eating & hunger.

My portions are substantially smaller even on UDs. I use tapas bowls and plates to serve my food.

My overall meals are mostly <400kcals - it's been a long time since I ate 500kcals at one sitting.

It's less common for me to eat food out of politeness. If I have to eat it, it's a suitably small amount. And it now rare for me to eat something that I actively don't enjoy.

I find most commercial confectionery or sweet items are too sweet for me to the point of being inedible. (Now, my palate's been weird ever since my last head injury, but that's mostly blunted my sense of taste in an episodic way, I don't think it's why I now experience commercial sweet items as unbearably sweet.)

I'm probably down to consuming <5 bread items a year at present (e.g., no toast, sandwiches, rolls, bagels, croutons with soup, dumplings with soup).
Motto: SINS - Simple Is the New Sustainable

Nov 2014 A DXA scan reported very low muscle mass (sarcopenia) so I'm still thinking about how to cope with that. I have some joint surgery to schedule. I may miss questions that people ask me or personals. Apologies if I do, it's not intentional.

I too have lessened appetite, especially for big meals. I had a burger and fries with my teen on Tues. and would've stuck 2/3 in the frig for later but I was dropping her at school then on to work and didn't want it sitting in my car or the work frig (but apparently didn't want to throw it out) so I ate it. And regretted it for like four hours after. I don't think I'll want a burger and fries for a while. I didn't even eat half the fries and still I felt like bursting.

I arrived here from 1200-1500 calorie per day dieting, so a change is that now when I see something I want to eat or drink, I buy it and enjoy it on UDs. Before I would just avoid high calorie foods: restaurant meals, alcohol, pizza, desserts, etc.

But now I also really think about what sounds good. If it's a DD and I have room for a little wine and that's what sounds good, I have it.

I too, eat pretty small portions unless I have fasted until a late dinner, which I do frequently. I rarely get hungry during the day at all and I only eat food I really enjoy. I also rarely eat out of politeness and do not feel that an an ocassion can only be enjoyed if eating. I can go to a party or gathering and have a great time even if I don eat. That is a big change for me.

I have been known to spit out food that didn't seem worth the calories - discreetly, of course!

I've done this with food samples/at food demonstrations but usually because I dislike it. It's fortunate that the napkins that they use to serve the samples are so substantial.

So, it seems like JUDDD nudges us towards appreciating our calories so much that we're no longer willing to eat something out of politeness or because it's socially expected of us. I think this is OK.

That said, context is everything and I can see how this behaviour might feel very different to someone with a history of eating disorders. Or people like my mother who taught us to eat whatever we were given when visiting people, even if we knew that it would probably give us food poisoning. (Yes, this is an appallingly vivid memory of the aftermath of a visit to a relative who gave us fish paste that was so spoiled it took conscious control of the gag reflex and copious amounts of tea to be able to swallow - and those of us who kept it down for the duration of the visit were horribly ill for several days afterwards.)

As you were. [/family history]

I rarely eat a main starch as part of my meal, e.g., potatoes, rice, pasta. As with bread, they're rare to occasional. (That's a mix of JUDDD and compensating for the reduced metabolic activity associated with the reduced skeletal muscle mass.)

Great thread! I had to think for a minute. In 10 weeks, I think my relationship with food is becoming more positive. I no longer think about eating something "forbidden" when I'm stressed. I had a very stressful week at work and stayed on track for all of my dd's. That is new for me since JUDDD. I would have let this week derail my "diet" completely. Not with JUDDD!

I started JUDDD low carbing, but I have ventured away from that. I'm going to continue this path until after the holidays and then go back to low carb. I feel better on low carb, but it's been nice to have "off limits' foods once in a while. I'm talking about peas, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, parsnips, carrots, beets, and apples. LOL Sure, the occasional sweet is nice too, but I enjoy the root vegetables and fruits more.

My dd is getting married in April, so if I low carb with JUDDD until then, I should hit my goal of 130.
